A Judeo-Christian law firm that fights for faith and freedom
says while the IRS was busy harassing conservative groups, it gave
a "blind eye" to the illegal activities of a radical Islamic
The American Freedom Law Center recently filed
another important document in its four-year battle to expose the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and what AFLC
describes as that group's "elaborate ties to terrorism, abuse of
tax codes and corporate law, and ... deliberate deception"
regarding its use of shell-corporations and "dubious" funding
sources. Included among CAIR's terrorist ties, says AFLC, are the
Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.
David Yerushalmi, co-founder and senior counsel at AFLC, says
even though CAIR had failed to file income returns for three years,
and then filed a tax-exempt application that sparked numerous red
flags, the Internal Revenue Service gave it a pass.
"While they [the IRS] were holding up perfectly
legitimate applications for the 501(c)(3) status, here they simply
overlooked and looked past all of these red flags and granted an
immediate (c)(3) status for CAIR," he tells OneNewsNow.
On his group's website, Yerushalmi accuses CAIR of "running a
money-laundering scheme over several years by ... siphoning money
from abroad and hiding it within their various entities."
He finds it "mind-boggling" that CAIR is allowed to exist as a
non-profit, tax-exempt organization, but that his group is prepared
to release a bombshell that should change that.
"I don't believe for a moment that CAIR is going to be existing
in another year or two ... because we have a lawsuit against them
for fraud, and I think that the judgment on that will bankrupt
them," he explains. "But even more so, I think what we have planned
for them in the coming months will essentially reduce them to a
non-entity - and it's about time."
Yerushalmi says Congress should also demand answers in the case against CAIR.
